Visibility/Location: Visibility is not bad, perhaps 
a spotlight near the event would help.

Wait Entertainment: The spider webs inside were very cool and the videos definitely kept us entertained. Could use a few 
more actors outside. Have often said a pot-t-john could 
be a good place for a scare 
GREAT to see that, it was 
funny, everybody encouraging 
women to use that one was a cool. The food outside was a 
good idea.

Length of Event: 15-20 min.

Actor Performance: All were very engaging and 
into their characters, did not see anybody out of place or unprepared. Freak in the Hellevator very entertaining.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They kept groups small which 
is good for everybody to enjoy the scare, makes the wait longer but I would rather 
wait in line longer than miss 
most of the scares.

Appropriate Ages: 13+

Props / Special FX: Very creative and detailed, some haunts just try to go cheap and make a buck, not here. The foggy cage maze was 
awesome and the pitch and I 
mean pitch black maze was as 
dark and confusing as a maze 
as I have seen in a long time

Costumes / Make-up: Very good and detailed not much skin showing.

Summary: We stumbled upon this haunt last year and made sure we had directions to it this year. This is well worth the money, we drove over an hour to get here. Only sugestions- 
spotlight for visibility, couple actors outside and please lose the Hillbilly room 
it was entertaining but was 
more funny that scary.

Visibility/Location: This could be improved for those that do not know where the fairgrounds are located. (perhaps a spotlight)

Wait Entertainment: Getting there early is for our group, the only way to go. We waited about 1/2 hr inside the "barn" area and as usual plenty of good visual effects.

Length of Event: Very good - about 20-25 mins.

Actor Performance: Very good - they were always ready for us to arrive!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good throughout!!

Props / Special FX: Thought the exorcism room could be improved upon. Did not feel the desired effect because of being in the room with 20 other people. group I was with also felt the same.

Summary: As usual, one of the best haunts and a highlight of the halloween season for our group. However - OUR ENTIRE GROUP DID NOT LIKE HAVING 4 ROWS OF PEOPLE IN THE BURIED ALIVE PORTION! We were all told to sit (which everyone except the guy running it could see that that was not going to possible) and then told "ok, well everyone kneel" well, thus, we were all kneeling staring at everyone else when we were supposed to be BURIED. I know that this is to help move the flow through the haunted house, however, this being one of the top reasons that this house is so good, they should not sacrafice the effect for timing. I think we would all wait the 5-10 extra minutes to experience that room as it states... Buried alive... unless they would like to buy more of the plastic balls...
